Professional Beauty & Makeup Tips

1. “Take a shimmery gloss to the center of your lips, top and bottom – this will attract light to your lips, making them look pouty.”-Katrina Barrion, makeup artist for Giella Custom Blend Cosmetics
2. Breakout before a big event? “Take oral cortisone a few days before the event to clear your skin”- Ava Shamban, dermatologist and author of Heal Your Skin.
3. For fuller lips, extend the lip line using a flesh tone lip liner. Be careful not to go overboard!
4. Always use an oil free moisturizer with SPF in the morning.
5. Winter can be especially harsh on your hair leaving it extra dry. Eugene Davis, celebrity hair stylist suggests using an Avocado Hair Mask.
6. “Use your concealer as a base on your eyelids” it will help even out your skin color and keep your liner set for longer.-Melissa Silver, Maybelline makeup artist.
7. When choosing the correct shade of red lipstick keep in mind your skin color. If you have dark to olive skin pick a shade with orange, yellow or golden hues. If you have fair to light skin, pick a shade with a blue base.
8. Drawing thick dark lines all around your eyes will make your eyes look smaller. To avoid this, don’t close the lines—line only the outside half of your bottom lid or don’t line the bottom lid at all.
9. When using lipstick always be sure to put a tad more product on the middle of your lips. This is the first place where lipstick tends to fade.
10. Brighten eyes with a dot of pale gold cream shadow at the inner corners. “It makes the eyes look wide open and beautiful in the light,” says makeup artist Tom Pecheux.
